Web sales at J.C. Penney drop 33% in Q2 The second quarter for J.C. Penney Co. was a bad one overall, but it was the web—and not stores—that took the biggest hit. For the first two quarters: •Web sales declined year over year about 30.1% to $491.0 million from $702.0 million. • Total sales decreased 21.1% to $6.2 billion from $7.8 billion in the first two quarters of 2011. • Net loss was $310.0 million compared with net income of $78.0 million in the first two quarters of 2011. While Johnson says his company has time to put in place a successful transition, some retail analysts aren’t so sure. "It’s tough watching things chip away at Penney, which has been an e-commerce powerhouse," says Jim Okamura, managing director of Chicago-based retail consulting firm Okamura Consulting.

Police make 450 arrests during 2012 London Olympics The British police have made nearly 450 arrests in their efforts to furnish the London 2012 Olympics security, including 182 cases of apprehension during a protest, staged by a group of activist cyclists. Tens of thousands of security officers were deployed in London during the Olympic Games. After the UK-based private security company G4S, which is accused of human rights abuses, failed to provide enough security staff for Olympic security, 18,200 military soldiers were deployed in London and over 12,000 police officers from 9 forces.

G4S donates $3.9 million to UK military charity The military had to step in at the last minute when G4S admitted it would have a staffing shortfall at the Olympics. The donation is on top of what G4S will have to pay back to the government for providing some 3,500 military personnel to make up for the shortfall. Mynott says G4S will end up making a loss of between 35 and 50 million (78 million dollars) pounds on the Olympic contract. (Source Associated Press)

Facial recognition may need regulating Congress might need to pass legislation to limit the way government agencies and private companies use facial recognition technology to identify people, a U.S. senator said recently. The growing use of facial recognition tools raises serious privacy concerns, said Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee's privacy subcommittee. No existing U.S. laws limit the use of facial recognition tools in the public or private sectors, said people who testified before the subcommittee. The FBI and the Department of Homeland Security have huge databases of biometric identifiers, and they're adding facial data to them. Meanwhile, Facebook users are uploading 300 million photos to the social networking site every day, said Jennifer Lynch, an attorney for the Electronic Frontier Foundation. "Many Americans don't even realize that they're already in a facial recognition database," she said. This version of this story was originally published in Computerworld's print edition. It was adapted from an article that appeared earlier on Computerworld.com. So it is getting press and the Daily posted the computerworld article as well. (Source csoonline.com)

San Diego ORC Conference Hailed A Success
By Joe LaRocca, Sr. Advisor, Loss Prevention

 

August 10, 2012

Earlier today, retail loss prevention and law enforcement professionals from the San Diego region and other parts of Southern California gathered for the second annual San Diego Organized Retail Crime Alliance (SDORCA) Conference.

The event started with opening comments from Detective/SDORCA Executive Director David Iorillo (San Diego Police Department), Commander Tim Curran (San Diego County Sheriff’s Department), Assistant Chief Boyd Long (San Diego Police Department) and Assistant Chief Cory Moles (Escondido Police Department). Each leader stressed the importance of public-private sector partnerships and specifically recognized the positive impact of SDORCA and the Executive Committee.

SDORCA was developed out of the efforts of local law enforcement and retailers throughout San Diego County. Throughout the day Iorillo thanked the retailers involved in the program and gave a special shout out to his original law enforcement partners Detective Tom Di Zinno (National City Police Department) and Detective Mike Martinez (Escondido Police Department) for their contributions.

The Law Enforcement Investigator of the Year was awarded to the San Diego Police Department’s, Western Division Street Crimes Unit, who all dedicated the time to attend the meeting. The Loss Prevention Investigator of the Year was awarded to Chris Arbeene (Abercrombie), Maurice Payne (Limited Brands), Kevin Stone (Gap Inc.) and Terence Wilkerson (Gap Inc.) for their efforts in breaking up a $6 million dollar box stuffing ring last year.

Beginning in March of 2008, several large 'booster' crews were systematically hitting multiple malls and retail stores throughout San Diego. These crews were very organized and profitable; averaging $10,000 per week in clothing theft.

As Detectives closed in on these crews, they realized their efforts would be best served if they worked together. Detectives from the Escondido Police Dept, National City Police Dept and San Diego Police Dept realized a bi-monthly informational / training meeting would be perfect.

At first the intention was to bring together law enforcement to share their investigations. It soon became apparent that bringing in loss prevention and security professionals would not only enhance the sharing of information, but would improve overall investigations and ultimate convictions.

A big thanks to the SDORCA team for the invitation to speak and attend the event today.

A wave of fake currency ($20's and $100's) is passing through the Okanagan and Thompson Valley, prompting an alert from police in the Vancouver area. "The typical modus operandi is for the passer to make an inexpensive purchase and pay with a large denomination, in turn receiving a large percentage of change back in authentic currency, leaving the bogus bill in the till," said RCMP spokesman Cpl. Dan Moskaluk. The RCMP has received 23 complaints about the passing or attempted passing of counterfeit bills in the past two weeks, he said Friday. The incidents involved bank notes in $20, $50 and $100 denominations and occurred in West Kelowna, Penticton, Kamloops, Okanagan Falls and other communities in the southern Interior.

 "Transitioning to Your New Job as an LP Director"

by Mike Keenan, CPP, CFI
Vice President of Loss Prevention
GAP North America


Shortage programs are an integral part of any LP program. Controlling shortage is a process. You must have all areas of the company working together to control shortage. There must be daily attention to all shortage control procedures. For this to happen, there must be support for reducing shortage that comes from the senior management of the company or else it will not be a priority.

The first step in creating a shortage program or enhancing an existing one is an Executive Shortage Committee. This committee should include senior management and Director level people. The higher the management levels in these meetings the better. Representation should include, LP, Finance, Operations, Distribution, Buying Line, IT, Internal Audit, Inventory Management, Human Resources, etc. You want people on the Committee who can go back to their Departments and make things happen. This Committee should focus on all areas of the business that can impact shortage. It should develop action plans that the people on the Committee can go out and execute. Examples include, store/DC LP standards, focus on high shortage stores, focus on high shortage merchandise, EAS tagging standards, etc.

A shortage program should include monthly shortage meetings in all stores and DCs. These meetings should include the facility Manager and key people in the location. The monthly topics should focus on high shortage areas and processes. All facility employees should be made aware of the focus topic each month. This can be done through separate meetings held at different times throughout the day. Retail schedules rarely allow for storewide meetings, so the individual meetings should be scheduled so that all employees are given the necessary information.

Another effective method is the development and implementation of individual Store shortage "action plans." These action plans should be based on the shortage results from the most recent Inventory. Focus areas can be companywide, store specific or a combination of both. The plans should define what each store is going to do to address the high shortage areas. District/Regional Store Operations and LP Managers should be required to approve the action plans. The action plans should be inspected throughout the year and stores must be held accountable for not executing their plans.

Some companies focus their efforts on high shortage or "target" stores. These "target store" programs are based on the concept that reducing shortage in the highest shortage stores will be the best return on the investment of resources. This approach is usually very successful in those stores. The challenge with this approach is that "non-target" stores can experience increased shortage because there is not a focus on them. Those stores can then become the new "target" stores.

An effective shortage program must include employee awareness training. Employee awareness starts with educating employees on their role in controlling losses in the company. What can they do every day to positively impact shortage? You must define the expectations for every employee. They need to take ownership for controlling losses. If they have “ownership” for controlling losses, they will be more likely to help than if they don’t feel they have any responsibility. This can be done by communicating your message(s) in new hire orientations, company newsletters, posters, etc. Developing a shortage logo and tagline will “brand” your program. As with an LP Department logo and tagline, create a companywide contest to get ideas. Your company employees can often times come up with some great concepts. If your company employees can’t come up with anything that fits your vision, work with your Marketing Department or, if you don’t have a Marketing Department, use an outside vendor.

Since shortage control requires daily attention, your goal should be to create a culture of loss prevention. You want all employees doing the right things every day. Doing the right things means not stealing, reporting those that do steal and following established procedures to prevent loss. A loss prevention culture takes time to develop but it will pay off every year in low shortage if it is maintained throughout the company.

Mom and son "box stuffing" ORC team hit Toys R Us for $2M and hit 50 states in one year A mother and son from Tamarac, Fla, may be placed on Santa's naughty list after being accused of stealing $2 million worth of toys. The Broward Sheriff's Organized Retail Crimes Unit arrested Ignatius "Michael" Pollara, 46, and his mother, Margaret Pollara, 70, on Thursday, accusing the pair of stealing more than $2 million in merchandise, WTVJ-TV reported. The son always used his reward card which is how Toys R Us LP Investigator, Patrick Fairley, was able to track him. Fairley tracked the reward card's usage and discovered that since May 9, Pollara had visited 139 Toys R Us stores in 27 states, spending a total of $6,737.94 on 175 purchases.
Special report
:
This male suspect was discovered after the Toys R Us investigator reviewed store reporting and identified a trend. It was not by chance that this suspect was discovered. Toys R Us stores communicated with the Investigations team each time this individual came into their stores which allowed for extensive case building. The case involves numerous retailers and the male suspect was tracked all over the U.S. through 30 states in the last 30 days alone and hit 118 retail establishments attempting to box stuff. It represents a great example of the tremendous partnerships between several different retailers and numerous law enforcement agencies. Great job Toys R Us! (Source wsvn.com)

Tip of the Day - Sponsored by Vector Security
 

How you leave an employer and how you start with a new employer are very critical segments of time because they can tend to label executives and those labels can last a very long time. Interesting how short the time periods are relative to an executive's actual career. But the exiting process and the on-boarding periods leave long-term impressions that follow executives. Regardless of why an executive leaves, the important thing is to leave professionally, quietly and making sure the employer has a detailed report on all of your projects and work. And most certainly respect their intellectual property which, in today's world, virtually every company has been a victim of intellectual property theft. According to most recent surveys, 33% of employees have stolen intellectual property and this is a major concern for every company and is the primary reason some employers require the departing executive to leave the day of their resignation.
